I really like it when photographers occasionally return to simplicity. I can safely claim that Stefan Soell's genius lies in the fact that he can make his simple images so vividly rich and inspiring that they can become breathtaking. I also like the fact that his German models are often extraordinary girls that we're likely to meet, but whose beauty truly shine when it's viewed through the eyes of a photographer with extraordinary abilities such as Stefan.
I don't quite know what caught my attention about this gallery. Was it that Mitzie has a charming serene sort of beauty? Maybe it's the simplicity of a well-done studio set? Maybe it's my fascination and respect for German models and beauty. I can't quite pinpoint a reason, but I am quite sure that you will like this set as well. A set of a beautiful German girl and an extraordinary German photographer.
Germany is a country that has a wonderful culture. The reality is often far from being similar to the stereotypes. The German language is an amazingly beautiful language - even when it's time to court someone - and German women are often very intelligent and very charming.
Yes, people from different countries always say that Germans have an obsession about cleanliness and order. However, many Germans will easily tell you that there are neighborhoods in Germany which are far from being spotless and that Austria looks more clean than Germany at times. There also are young people who are bored, have untidy closets, dirty apartments, and practically speak a new language - it's not just globalization. Germany just has its own culture and subcultures, just like any other country. It's true that "Ordnung muss sein" is a personal motto and even a law for some people, but I am sure that it's similar in a lot of other places.
There are many great things that are made in Germany, and those include those wonderful nudes by many photographers including Stefan Soell. Also, those brave young German models - Corinna, Anna-Leah, and Susann are wonderful examples - are often very vibrant and beautiful in their own way. It's no wonder that German women were mentioned in the German national anthem.
Mitzie is just as beautiful. It's really hard to describe beauty, it always transcends words. It's also hard to describe German beauty, it's always very special.
